Happy Little Stampers December Christmas Challenge

Hello! Are you ready for a new Christmas challenge? Over at Happy Little Stampers our new challenge has just gone live. Time for you to get those last minute cards done and we have plenty of inspiration for you!

That's right - we would like you to use at least one star on your project. 

Here is my card -

I used a mixed media strip of paper. I slapped some texture paste through a memory box stencil (Stars Starry Nights). Once dry, I sprinkled red brushos all over and misted with water. Because of the white texture paste, the colour seemed to go pink but I really liked it.

When it was completely dry (again), I placed the stencil back on top and sponged gold ink over the stars. 

The sentiment (HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments) was embossed in gold on vellum. I tore the edge of the vellum for interest. This sentiment embossed like a dream.

If you play along this month, you have the chance to win a stamp set from Happy Little Stampers!

Pop on over to the challenge blog where you will find amazing inspiration from the designers!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Karleigh Sue Challenge - Anything Goes with a twist of Non-traditional Xmas colours
AAA Cards - Anything Goes Clean and Simple
